Residents of France are encouraged to purchase insurance, as it's been our experience that this postal service has the highest loss rate of any country we regularly deal with. Even purchasing insurance doesn't always offer protection as the French postal service often refuses to acknowledge a package has gone missing, even when it's gone missing for eight or more months. Since French officials won't acknowledge a package is missing, an insurance claim can't be processed. Thus, we can't guarantee packages to France will actually arrive if sent via the postal service. UPS will guarantee the package's arrival, so you may want to select UPS or FedEx as your shipper of choice. No refunds on lost shipments.
The USPS does not accept packages addressed to post office boxes in Draw, Kargil, and Leh in the state of Kashmir between November 1 and May 31.
We only ship to Spain via USPS as dietary supplements via UPS or FedEx are denied in customs and they assess a large fee to have them returned.
We will refund the purchase price (not including shipping & handling) for any item returned that does not meet your expectations as long as the item has not been opened and/or damaged due to normal use.Contact Us
